Youth Empowerment (YE)

The Youth in Pakistan, defined by the Pakistan Ministry of Youth Affairs as those under the age of 29, comprise approximately 70% of the population. Although youth have played a constructive role in many democratic struggles and political transitions, academics have also noted a strong correlation between large youth populations and political instability, especially in developing countries. There is a lack of positive role models among Pakistan's current political leadership; youth have become increasingly apathetic and apolitical. ithout a critical mass of young activists and leaders dedicated to promoting a vision of a tolerant, peaceful, and democratic country, Pakistan is likely to continue along a tragic trajectory of authoritarianism, corruption, extremism, and poverty.
